jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, - SEP 19, 2012
2012-09-14. Very dark brown-black body with a small tan head. 3+ Sweetish dark malt, muted dry roast. 6+ Mild aroma, dusty roast. 6+ Smooth average plus body. Decent, but simple and a touch too mild overall. On tap at Beer Academy, Toronto

asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2014
[on tap at brewpub] Smooth, faintly roasted barley vanilla aroma with faint noble hops. Clear dark brown under a lasting, off-white sheet surrounded by large bubbles. Fairly sweet flavor with roasted barley vanilla, coffee, and brown sugar accents. Bitterness is insufficient to balance the sweet malt. Medium body, moderate to medium carbonation, clean finish.

This style is based on Germanyís Schwarzbier. Itís colour befits its name and it pours with a small head. Itís five-per-cent alcohol and rates a 23 IBU on the bitterness scale. Espresso and bitter chocolate are the predominant flavours in this medium-hopped brew that some people may be able to drink more of in one sitting than a heavier porter or stout.

sudomorph (376) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
625ml bottle. Pours black with a three finger, tan head that thins to a half finger and leaves mild lacing. Aroma is large with notes of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is slightly bitter/sweet with big chocolate notes and a short roasty aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Slightly creamy, bubbly mouth feel. This is a very easy drink. Great taste and aroma. Reminds me of a good porter or chocolate stout but not as thick.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
A dark brown schwarzebier with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet chocolate malt with chalky notes, grassy, OK. In mouth, a bitter chocolate with chalky notes, coffee, not bad.

neuromatt (1016) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
On tap at Harbord House in Toronto, served in a tulip. Pours deep black with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of roast malt and noble hops, along with subtle smoke and earth. The flavour is dry and roasty with subtle hoppiness and a touch of molasses. The finish is long and roasty but fairly well balanced. On the palate, it is medium in body with a slightly dry texture and average carbonation. Overall, a decent black lager with nice malts and good balance. 2013-04-16
